EVFPD Welcomes New Wildland Fire Education Coordinator

Our community’s fire prevention team welcomes Mike Lepore as the new Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) Fire Education Coordinator for the Estes Valley Fire Protection District (EVFPD).
Mike will provide the community with wildland fire education and residential Firewise risk assessments. With a particular emphasis on high-risk areas, he will meet with individual property owners and home-owner groups to provide education on Firewise principals and steps to reduce fire risk. His goal is to foster more community ownership in the protection of life and property from wildland fire.
Mike joins the Fire District with a background in electrical engineering and facilities management. He is also a Certified Project Manager.
“Mike’s organizational and project management skills will be a great asset to the fire prevention program as we look to affect our community’s overall fire risk,” said Fire Marshal Marc Robinson. “To truly reduce the entire Valley’s fire risk, requires coordination of efforts between individual property owners, neighborhoods and the Fire District.”

Mike and his wife Charlene moved to Estes Park as full-time residents in 2000, when they became empty nesters and Mike took early retirement. Mike’s hobbies include reading, fly fishing and model railroading. He is also an amateur radio operator. Mike married his high school sweetheart, Charlene, 52 years ago. His family includes six children and nine grandchildren.
To have a Residential Firewise Risk Assessment completed for your property or to arrange a group presentation, please contact Mike at 970-577-0900, ext. 3682 or mlepore@estesvalleyfire.org.
